Magic rallies over Grizzlies

Darrell Armstrong had 29 points and 11 assists and the Magic won consecutive games without Tracy McGrady, beating the Grizzlies 103-99 Friday night. Vancouver led 91-85 with 4:50 left, but the Magic finished with an 18-8 run to win for the fifth time in seven games.

McGrady, Orlando's leading scorer and rebounder, was serving the latter half of a two-game suspension for fighting Saturday with Sacramento's Bobby Jackson.

Mike Miller had 23, including a three-pointer with 2:15 left for a 93-91 Orlando lead, its first since the first quarter.
